About the role

This is an exciting opportunity to work with communities across the city and support Bristol on the journey to becoming carbon neutral by 2030.

Joining Bristol Green Capital Partnership’s small team in this new post, the Community Coordinator will oversee and manage the day-to-day running of an 18-month project based on co-production principles, delivered in partnership with representatives from 6 local communities, the local council and the Centre for Sustainable Energy.

The successful candidate will have a track record in project management, planning and delivery and will be experienced in developing relationships and working with a broad range of stakeholders.

They will support project coordination as communities identify hyper-local priorities and concerns, connect with other communities and access expertise within the city, enabling each community to coproduce their own Community Climate Action Plans which deliver on local priorities whilst supporting Bristol’s goal to become carbon neutral by 2030.

We are looking for someone who has some experience of working with the voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector, who brings the awareness and sensitivity needed to manage the needs of a community-led project within a changing context, and who is able to communicate clearly and inclusively, identifying synergies that bring the maximum benefit to the communities who are at the heart of this project along the way.

The Community Coordinator will lead the central coordination of the project, essential for the programmes progress and achieving the project aims. Key functions will include: collaborative project set-up, planning and delivery, leading Partner Forum meetings and working with the Partners Forum to facilitate the development of project reporting mechanisms, communications, grant budget administration and project reporting.

Reporting to the Chief Operating Officer, the Community Coordinator will play an important role maintaining strong, positive stakeholder relationships with project supporters and funders.

The ultimate aim of this project, and of Bristol Green Capital Partnership, is to work towards achieving environmental, social and economic benefits for Bristol and the West of England.
